I'm losing my mind. This program is constantly crashing while editing during a host of functions: rendering, trimming, titling - you name it. I'm under the gun here and I'm going crazy. Please help me make this system more stable:

Premiere Pro CS4
Windows XP Pro V.2002
SP3
Dell Precision PWS 690 Quad Core
Intel Xeon CPU
E5320 @ 1.86Ghz
1.86 Ghz, 3.00 GB Ram

Thanks in advance. Dyin ovah heah.

are you running the latest CS4 updates ?

how large is your project?

what sort of media are you using ? SD/HD 1080i ? HDV ?

more system specs please!

HDV 1080i NTSC project
1/2 hour TV show. Close to 700 clips.
Dell Precision 690 Tower / Quad core. 4g Ram / @ 1.86Ghz

I've tweaked everything I know how to tweak and the problem seems to be isolated to rendering at this point. I have my RAM maxed out. I defrag frequently.

I have all of my footage, etc. on one internal drive. I have all of my previews going to another internal drive. Nothing going to the C drive and nothing going to a fourth internal drive.

Is this a scratch disc issue? How should they be set up?

What else could be causing this? It's killing me.

Did you check the performance tab in Windows to see if you are exceeding your physical RAM ? It's quite possible in you are working in 64 bits.

Other causes could be background programs. No antivirus, spyware remover, etc.

If I'm running 32 bit XP I can't be working at 64 can I? No programs running in the background. Just crashed (hard) again. Third time this afternoon. Each time was during a render.

Do watch that memory, it does go up at its highest during render and playback, I'd say there's a good chance that's the issue. Basically as the projects get larger, you'll need faster drives (possibly RAID) and more memory.
